Classes of Hosting Services

A hosting solution suggests hoarding and/or sharing certain web content on a hosting server managed by a web hosting provider. There are various types of hosting services used for different ends, so let's take a gaze at them. In that way, you can choose what you want, on the basis of whether you wish to have a site, mail addresses, or to share files with chums and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a service made available by certain hosts, which permits you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole function is to share files, since it does not offer web page uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to see a register of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php website files in your web browser. Free-of-cost file storage plans often include ads beside the download links, while a timer obliges you to wait for a specific stretch of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you possess a paid file storage account, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no limit as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

Now, with the help of the cPanel hosting vendors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly twisted explanation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud web hosting environment would assign the tasks at hand between autonomous hosts of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending various web page hosting services (mail, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, web site hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a type of a storage space hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; specific companies offer a hosting service for images only. This hosting variant is suitable if you want to share an enormous number of pics with friends or partners since the service is typically free of charge. You will receive a randomly generated link for every image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service committed to handling your e-mail accounts. Some corporations offer hosting services for sites, but do not supply an email hosting service. If you want to possess an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to have a site, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you require. You can open electronic mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain name. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a given video clip, or you can embed the video file in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of using this approach instead of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video creates a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of video files and a few hundred web site viewers, you may have difficulty with your hosting reserves. Embedding the video clip will allow you to own as many video clips as you wish without hassling about system quotas.

- Web page hosting: this is the service that you require if you would like to run a site. To a certain extent, it involves all of the abovementioned hosting forms since, along with your websites, you can also host pictures and files, you can create databases and email box accounts, upload video files, etc. At 'NTC Hosting', for example, you can take a look at budget web hosting and Virtual Private Server hosting packages that enable you to have all of the abovementioned solutions in one single location. There may be restrictions based on the form of website hosting service that you've settled on - a free web hosting package, a paid shared website hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your webspace hosting package may be better or worse compared to the regular email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are created for particular web content only.
